I started disassembling engines, washing parts, learning how to use the engine rebuilding equipment, sweeping floors and cleaning the restrooms. Everyday after school and on weekends I would be at the shop doing what I loved. I have raced as a driver, Quarter midgets, Go karts, Sprint Cars, Mini Indy Cars and Thunder Roadsters. Driving is fun but my real passion is building race cars and engines that win.
